I remember Jim Brandenburg once speaking about the word "Serendipity" in one of his videos about the Nikon D800, since watching the video that word has been stuck into my brain. Serendipity basically means: happy accident. I believe that when we are out with our cameras we come across a lot of "happy accidents" whether thats the animal acting in a unusual behaviour or something happens that you didn't expect and it takes you by surprise. This was one of those moments...
